Don’t Let Your Heat Pump Get Too Cold

Monday, January 17th, 2022

This blog post might serve more as a public service announcement than an advice column. There are plenty of homeowners in our area that use heat pumps during the winter to stay warm without consuming too much energy. The systems are great heaters and they work exceptionally well when temperatures are moderately cold. However, when we get sudden dips in temperature, there can be a serious problem that occurs.

Heat pumps can sometimes start running in recovery mode, which is a specific process it has to go through when it’s starting to freeze. This can be a little disconcerting for homeowners that start receiving cold air from their vents.

Don’t worry, you can always call us if you think you need heat pump repair in Glenview, IL. Though, if you’re just dealing with a heat pump that’s defrosting, we’ll talk about why that might not be as much of a problem as you might think!

Maintenance and Repairs Go Hand in Hand

Monday, August 2nd, 2021

There’s a growing misconception that if you’re on a budget, you need to choose between maintenance and repairs. Repairs can be scheduled when you need them, like when an air conditioner breaks down or starts running into problems. Maintenance is preventative, meaning you get it at the start of the year in hopes that any problems are caught before they become repair needs. In reality, both of these services are necessary. They work together, and even if you’re on a budget, we recommend calling us for both.

We try to make this obvious by having our maintenance plan give discounts on parts and labor for repairs. When you sign up for maintenance, it makes it cheaper and easier to call us for repairs when you need them. It shouldn’t be a choice between air conditioning repair in Glenview, IL and maintenance, you should always invest in both!

Here’s why.
